Look, I really want to do more standard Lamley features. I have several ready to go, including a look at some of the old HW Modern Classics from a few years ago. But damn if Hot Wheels and other diecast companies don’t keep rolling out the news.
I love this time of year. We don’t know all of what is coming, so everything teased is brand new news. And here is some very welcome news. Designer Ryu Asada dropped this on his Instagram:
While I don’t know what the official name is for the casting, that is obviously the Ford GT LM, which won the last 24 hours of Le Mans. This looks to have a standard Ford livery, and I do wonder if the livery of the Le Mans winning car is in the future. Hopefully Ryu will post more angles, because this appears to be a beauty. I surefire addition to the collection…
(And I just found out that this one has actually replicates one of the coolest elements of the real Ford GT, the floating pillar. The actual floating pillar is there. How cool is that?)
It is so cool to see these sneaks popping up all over Instagram by way of the designers. We collectors obviously gobble up this information, and this is better than grainy pics of stolen items out of the factory. This seems to be a new era of information from Hot Wheels, and it is most welcome.
Now back to preparing my Modern Classics post…
